of states like in wisconsin and probably in pennsylvania you're having voter i.d. laws which is probably one of the most common form of voter suppression put in place. then the courts are blocking it. in south carolina, in texas doj has been blocking a lot of the efforts and so there is a sort of like two steps backwards one step forward process going on here. where a lot of states are trying to make voting laws worse but we're seeing a pushback from the courts and the department of justice. >> bill: okay. but it has been -- over 20 where there have been attempts, right? >> that's right. they're very calm and they take very different forms. >> bill: i was going to get to that. let's talk about some of the forms. what is the most common form? voter i.d.? >> probably the most common is voter i.d. this is a kind of bait and switch. the way that voter i.d. works is it is sort of intuitive to people that you should show i.d. to prove you are who you are at the polls. people are worried about voter fraud. a lot o

is this going to balance out? >> 17 states including ohio have passed restrictive voting laws. in ohio what you saw were early voting hours being reduced in democratic counties and expanded in republican counties. >> jennifer: will that cause people to not stand in line? >> i think it is going to backfire exactly. i think in 2004 what happened is that black voters stood in long lines in order to vote. in 2008 they used early voting in order to make sure their were aim to get their voting in hence the restrictions. now i think as people hear about the restrictions i think that will get people fired up. >> jennifer: i think the backfiring issue is going to play powerfully. hey, karl we have been talking about these polls and the enthusiasm. there is an interesting poll that came out from 7-eleven. customers can get their coffee in a blue cup or red cup. for the past three presidential elections they have predicted the winner. and today president obama is ahead by 16 points. should we trust 7-eleven karl? >> pardon me i'm parched governor. excuse me.

not lie with a man and a woman. then you have to follow all of the laws which means execute gay guys and children who are gluttons or drunks, execute people who work on the sabbath. that's saturday, sorry nascar. execute adulters which includes people who get divorced and remarried. i don't mind being a homophobe. it is a free country. don't hide behind the bible. jesus never said an anti-gay thing in his life. romans is paul talking about romans sexual practices and it is all mistranslated from the original greek. deuteronomy is about male prost tuesday. you don't find anything about consensual relationships between same sex adults in the bible that you can use to justify homophobia. christianity is not cover for bigotry. you want to hate gay people, you're allowed to it. is a free country. don't claim you are being christian. jesus doesn't want you to judge sinners. he never said a damn thing about gay people. i can prove jesus had no problem with gay people as well but we'll do that later in the show mayb
